A former steroid user told the Toronto Sun that anabolic steroids in Edmonton, Canada are not hard to find. Actually, you can purchase it with ease from local distributors. The source also admitted that these steroids were mostly made in the area. This allegation could be true because local police recently raided a house full of steroids. A , which was allegedly run by a family, can produce thousands of anabolic steroid products based on the evidences gathered by the authorities.
Raided Home Laboratories
This is not the first time Canadian authorities raided home laboratories. In fact this is the second home steroid home laboratory busted for this month alone. Authorities have a continuing campaign against these illegal manufacturers but there are still many people who know how to evade authorities. The discovery of this steroid lab was due to an incident on Aug 24 when the drug and gang unit pulled over a 2009 Mercedes for inspection. But what they found were steroids and other prescription drugs worth $40,000 and cash amounting to $3,800. Information gathered by the authorities was significant in the arrest of the suspects and uncovering of their illegal operation. “This was a spinoff of that. We don’t typically get involved with steroid files. It’s certainly not for a lack of use - quite clearly. We just don’t get that many complaints,” said Greg Preston, head of the organized crime department.
Worth of Steroids
Police investigators have yet to determine how long this home lab is operating. “It would take some time to accrue these assets,” said Preston. According to the report of the Edmonton Journal, police seized $250,000 worth of anabolic steroids, $240,000 in cash, and $230,000 worth of luxury cars. They also seized weighing scales, several empty bottles. Several thousands of steroid pills and 12 liters of its liquid version were now under the custody of the authorities.
A Guide in Making Anabolic Steroids
A how-to guide in making anabolic steroids was also found in the home laboratory. The book which was written by a Professor named Frank is entitled “Anabolic Steroids and Making Them.” However, an inquiry on its website revealed that the author is a retired auto worker and currently working at Wal-Mart. The ingredients which were believed to be coming from overseas and an unknown formula used in making these substances is a perfect combination for creating a very dangerous drug.
Those people buying steroids from this home lab could be ruining their life. There are already reported side effects of steroids but taking these prescription drugs from unlicensed manufacturers could pose more serious side effects and complications. “What should be concerning to potential users is that it appears some of the steroids were being processed and packaged for injections in a makeshift lab in someone’s home. As in any uncontrolled laboratory, there are no guarantees on the cleanliness or contents of the product being made,” said Preston. “This is a homegrown lab. I’m quite confident Johnson & Johnson wouldn’t have pets and food around them in their laboratory. Look at the vials and machinery. It doesn’t look too clean,” he added.
The use and possession of anabolic steroid is not illegal in the country but manufacturing and distributing these steroids without the proper license is illegal. The authorities already charged the suspects; Charles William Fougere, Susan Ann Fougere, Trevor Raymond Fougere, Troy Charles Fougere, Brock Reginald Chichak. They were charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime and production of controlled substance. The anabolic products found in the home of the Fougeres were sold online, by mail order or through personal contacts. BATH TUB HGH???
